6:35 pm
gives you an unexpected treat. we may not have been expecting belgium against tunisia to deliver it, but within five minutes be present started. belgium gifted a penalty which eden hazard duly dispatched. the premier league's influence extended to belgium second, too. romelu lukaku! the game kept on giving. not 20 minutes old when the only player on the field in belgium, got one. still romelu lukaku found space to restore belgium's two—goal advantage and move level with tournament's top scorer. the nation needed to look at this game a little differently. the best angle came from and try as they might, tunisia just couldn't keep eden hazard down. fantastic goal, hazard. he's got two as well,
6:36 pm
belgium have four. they could've had plenty more as well. hazard's chelsea team—mate made missing look simpler than scoring on more than one occasion. third time lucky though, right? at last, he can make it five. in a thoroughly convincing victory. if belgium's three—scoring form was worrying, their defensive lapse cause for optimism. this effort was never going to be more than consolation though, qualification almost wrapped up. ben croucher, bbc news. to different types of games, especially in competition like the world cup, and then just finding that desire to finding the solutions in each game. we had to suffer at spells, but then when we were at full flow going forward, we look really sharp. there's many things that we need to keep doing well. but it's qualification after two games, and you cannot ask more
6:37 pm
from this group of players. we were sitting just a couple of rows behind the belgian dugout. and roberto martinez stood in the technical area, eevn when it started tipping down. which it was for most of the match. we had peculiar weather here today. we had peculiar weather here today. we had peculiar weather here today. we had a hailstorm as well. we know the players are going to know each other inside out. we saw three premier league gaolscorers today. it isa it is a permit league game as well. we have 15 players i think playing the lamellae. we don't want next season the lamellae. we don't want next season in dressing room to talk about this game, but the winning game. so give everything and also we wa nt to game. so give everything and also we want to be top of the group. so that is how group jean—luc want to be top of the group. so that is how groupjean—luc seppi moment. nobody is definitely up at the moment. of the belgians look six points, goal difference of plus six, they have looked the most impressive of anything here so far. if england
6:38 pm
beat panama tomorrow then both will go through, rather better idea tomorrow, which aside from group h, both belgium, our fingers tomorrow, which aside from group h, both belgium, ourfingers crossed tomorrow, which aside from group h, both belgium, our fingers crossed to england, too, could be facing. the final match of the day kicks off in sochi in the next 20 minutes. germany facing sweden. this is in group f, germany now know that they cannot afford to lose. if they do against sweden, then they would be going home after the group stages. they would fail to qualify for the last 16. that is after another win from mexico. they now top the group on six points. they beat the germans of course and now they have beaten the south koreans to— one. ——south korea 2—1. drew savage reports. the mexican fans were on a high after beating germany and the continued against south korea. in the first half,...
6:39 pm
south korea claimed jang hyun—soo's handball wasn't deliberate. but the officials gave the penalty without consulting var. and carlos vela's calmness in taking it contrasted with the scenes that followed. south korea, needing something from this match to stay in the world cup, demanded a penalty of their own. this one, turned down. and mexico showed, for the second game in a row, how deadly they are on the counterattack. their leading scorer, javier hernandez, or chicharito as he's also known, took his country to the brink of the knockout stages. there was a moment to savour for the south koreans. son heung min of spurs provided it. but only in injury time and two minutes later, it was mexico who celebrated. two games, two wins, and too good for south korea. drew savage, bbc news. a 50th mexico goal for two to retell there. the 14th here at this world cup. we're only halfway through the group stages. there were 13 in all, in brazilfour years ago. that is
6:40 pm
all down to var. isn't it was back let's have a little look at group effort. after that mexico result. and what it means for germany. as i say, they cannot afford to lose against sweden now and sochi. the reigning champions have made four changes to the one that lost to mexico reus, rudiger hector, and rudi coming in. they really mixed things up in the back line. arsenal's ozil has been dropped, one change for sweden. victor lindelof comes in. that is everfor victor lindelof comes in. that is ever for russia for now. later in the programme we will had east to nizhny novgorod where england have arrived for their match against paanma tomorrow. let's head back to holly hamilton in the bbc sport centre. thanks for that. i think your geography is better than mine there. and from moscow to sydney where ireland's incredible season continued with their first three—match series win down under since 1979.
6:41 pm
for the irish, some frayed nerves during that final deciding test at the allianz stadium withjoe schmidt's side hanging on until the final whistle as patrick gearey reports. music. winning on the other side of the world is rugby‘s great test. but this irish team never lacks in that department. rumbling through australia, cj stander, the scorer. that try and this match had been tributes to collective work, but the wallabies found space for individual brilliance, kicking collect, express and first class. he delivered. just a point between the sides now. a situation which puts a premium on a player likejohnny saxton, who knows it's over as soon
6:42 pm
as he has kicked it. that, his fifth penalty, no other irish men or women were as calm, so imagine the emotional frenzy and sydney as australia mounted one last attack. but the pass was off, the time was up. ireland, champions of the north, make history in the south. patrick gearey, bbc news. over in south africa, england can celebrate the end of their lesing—streak—withvictery in the third and final test. the hosts claimed the series 2—1, but with moments of magic from danny cipriani and jonny may, england's 25—10 win at newlands could give head coach eddiejones some much needed hope. asjoe lynskey reports. in english rugby, they are hoping for the storm to pass. this i a for the storm to pass. this is a tea m for the storm to pass. this is a team on their worst running years. the last five tests have brought defeat. the third match of this series was effectively a dead rubber, but instead 80 minutes to solve the problems. england's under pressure coach knew the significance, bolan south africa
6:43 pm
scored the first try it seems the problems were mounting. england's defends unlock the i a delicate touch. but for a team in crisis, england kept their focus. touch. but for a team in crisis, england kept theirfocus. they touch. but for a team in crisis, england kept their focus. they tip their way back in front through the boot of owen farrell, a five—point lead the foundation for risk—taking. from the boot of danny cipriani, jonny may had a target insight. a race with the players and the pitch, touched down just in time. race with the players and the pitch, touched downjust in time. for england, a release from the pressure. the end of the slump. or significant results await this team. but the hope is now that the clouds will pass and the recovery starts. joe lynskey, bbc news. lewis hamilton will start the first french grand prix for ten years from the front of the grid. the world champion dominated qualifying, bouncing back from the disappointment finishing fifth last time out in canada, where he surrendered his formula one championship lead. nick parrott was watching the action. after consternation and canada,
6:44 pm
mercedes were determined to be fast in france. lewis hamilton wasjust five years old in the last time paul ricard's circuit held the french grand prix, being well struck him was vital for this unfamiliar right. hamilton proved the best that adapting to this new environment, topping the time sheet and friday practise and doing the same in the first two sessions of qualifying. while the world champion was nimble, the spring and the step of the winner of last week and's 2a hours didn't last long. fernando alonso's mccla ry didn't last long. fernando alonso's m ccla ry we nt didn't last long. fernando alonso's mccla ry went to didn't last long. fernando alonso's mcclary went to 16th on the grid. his worst qualifying this season. and there was little for the home fa ns to and there was little for the home fans to cheer, as their man's ambition exceeded his car. his crash suspending the final session for five minutes. the delay didn't distract hamilton as he defeated to claim the 75th pole of his career, with championship leaders sebastian vettel third, hamilton will be hopeful of returning to the top of the standings. nick parrott, bbc
6:45 pm
news. elsewhere, england's women's cricketers have lost the first of the two twenty20—tri series matches they're playing today in taunton. they'd won their first match against south africa with a record—breaking innings of 250, this time 71 from tammy beaumont helped them to 161 forfive. but lizelle lee put the south africans in control. she really hit out, six sixes, in a quick—fire 68 offjust 37 balls. two late wickets from sophie ecclestone had given england hope but suner lose knocked off the winning runs with three balls to spare. it's south africa's first win of the series. it's new zealand next for england in the double header at taunton, who are looking to continue their unbeaten run so far on this tour. england won the toss and have opted to bat. currently england are 130 for 4. ——currently england are 130 for 5. novak djokovic's return to form and fitness continues at queens, as he booked his place in the tomorrow's final. it was a straight sets win
6:46 pm
for the former world number one againstjeremy chardy. the pair have met now 11 times, and chardy is yet to win a single set against djokovic. he'll play last year's wimbledon runner up marin cilic in tomorrow's final. it's been a while, that i have played for a title. so this is definitely a very special moment for me. considering what i've been through in the last year or so. so it's just a great occasion. in germany, roger federer is one match away from winning a tenth halle open final. he beat denis kudla in straight sets but the american, who is 11 years hisjunior, did push federer to a tie break in both. and finally at royal ascot, the big race of the day, the diamond jubliee stakes, was won by the aidan o'brien trained 4—1 shot merchant navy.
6:47 pm
jockey ryan moore held off the challenge of french horse city light. bound for nowhere was third. favourite harry angel only finished seventh after getting a leg stuck in the stalls at the start of the race. now let's head back to olly foster in moscow, and a look ahead to tomorrow, when england play their second match of the world cup. many thanks indeed. another win for mexico. we are about 15 minutes away from the kick—off and sochi where germany cannot afford to lose. against sweden. that is after that mexico win a little bit earlier than that here in moscow. we saw a big win for the belgians, 5—2 against tunisia. england just squeaking past tunisia. england just squeaking past tunisia in their opening match. i wonder what gareth southgate's team will have made of that belgium performance. mightily impressive it was. let's cross life now. and to be
6:48 pm
two—hour sports and other, dan roan. evening to you. you are there in position ahead of that match against panama tomorrow. what have you made of the build—up over the last six daysin of the build—up over the last six days in between these england matches? is this distraction of the league team sheet, does that have any league team sheet, does that have a ny effect league team sheet, does that have any effect at all the you think?|j don't any effect at all the you think?” don't think it will have had any effect on the players, no. the reporting of that story you may recall began to her three days ago when gareth southgate's assistant steve holland during a training session was found clutching a piece of paper on which they gave the various clues as to perhaps the starting line—up for this match. the beacon news it seems to suggest that raheem sterling would be dropped and marcus rashford, and for this match against adama. and gareth southgate had his say to the four hours later, suggesting that the media needs to decide whether or not they wanted to help the team, the implication being that in some way that had not been
6:49 pm
helpful. today the manager held his traditional bryon this conference come and he addressed those comments. —— pre—match press conference. they did debate on social media and further afield as well. many members of the public thinking that he was right, various members of the media thinking he was wrong. this is what the manager had to say earlier on today.” wrong. this is what the manager had to say earlier on today. i think everybody would agree, if the opposition have your team in any sport, that is a competitive advantage. but it is not the job of the media to protect that, i accept that completely. as i say, the other day was a list of 23 players. people have ta ken day was a list of 23 players. people have taken something from that, which probably isn't correct, but thatisit which probably isn't correct, but that is it for me. no drama. damn, i suppose with our england hats on we would like to think that england's second 11 could probably get a positive result against adama. —— panama. what shape you think they are in? they had that opening defeat
6:50 pm
to the belgians, what we seen today area to the belgians, what we seen today are a very good belgian side. julia whether here in moscow, it is very hot there as well. yet, no bugs or insects we encountered, although i considered it is very warm indeed. even now into the evening. it is particularly warm. unlike there, they will be playing in the heat of they will be playing in the heat of the day, 3pm local. at that time today, it was well into 30 degrees and beyond. it will be the same tomorrow. because of the way this stadium, new and very striking stadium, new and very striking stadium, is built with this great come a big glass panels, it seems to make it even warmer than it is outside. a sort of glasshouse effect. this is very different to what england have been used to in their past. it will very much favour their past. it will very much favour the panamanians, their past. it will very much favour the pa namanians, who their past. it will very much favour the panamanians, who did lose their opening match to belgium 3—0, but they did at least prove stubborn opponents for the first half, they area opponents for the first half, they are a very physical side. yes, they are a very physical side. yes, they are rank 55 in the world rankings,
6:51 pm
well below england, this is their first appearance in a world cup finals, but i don't think england should be taking them lightly at all. as gareth southgate suggested earlier on as well. we have seen already that the difficulty, big countries in terms of rankings have had in breaking down lower —ranked teams. that has been a thing right the way throughout. so there is no way there is any complacency in the way there is any complacency in the way we have prepared for the game. the situation in the group obviously isa the situation in the group obviously is a healthy one for us, but we've got to focus on our performance. england obviously had to rely on that last cast winner by captain harry kane, to overcome tunisia on monday evening. i think that will ta ke monday evening. i think that will take such a great deal of confidence from the performance, they had so many chances of course in that first half. and now are desperate to
6:52 pm
maintain that momentum. there have of course been lots of talk going into this worked up about how england would fare. there was something of a unknown quantity. i think they have proved a lot with that performance. now theyjust need to carry it through and they now know that because of that win today by belgium early on, that england will qualify for the last 16 come if they can overcome panama and the heat here tomorrow. exciting times for england. dan roan, our sports editor there. ahead of the match tomorrow. many thanks indeed for joining us on sports day. of course we will be across all the build—up to that match on bbc news tomorrow lunchtime. that game. let's look ahead to it as well. we spoke earlier to former england captain frank lampard who is with our bbc sport colleagues across the road here. he talked to us about england's position within group g. and that match tomorrow. if we don't win and we took a drop,
6:53 pm
of course we would all be very disappointed. still expecting to go fight. yet, it's nice that we have got a good feeling. good feeling comes as much in the result against tunisia and as much about the performance that we saw in the opening, creating chances and good football. so more of that. and that what everybody wants to see. it excites the fans, people are really happy back home. to see a team play with such energy and forward thinking team. so, yeah, keep that going while you got it. i don't expect any less of gareth southgate. he's not going to let the lads offer. i think they have now the idea that they had to keep going. we have so many options now. you saw that gareth can bring off the bench, that gareth can bring off the bench, that can change. i think the majority of the players themselves. we do have another way to go. we have other players who can come on, we have maybe a change to ask to the system that can potentially change again, so yeah. there remains to be seen. again, so yeah. there remains to be seen. we will certainly be tested at some point in this tournament, where it is what we're going to do in the situation, and then it will be up to the players to try and change the
6:54 pm
game. marcus rashford when he puts on aiden english start is a positive and bring something that is so different that he picks it all up and runs straight at defenders. that a lwa ys and runs straight at defenders. that always scares defenders. and gives us always scares defenders. and gives us another option. so i think gareth's fortunate there. i wouldn't be surprised to see ratchford play against metrically and for the rest of the tournament. —— rashford play guest of it. i believe we have a really good chance. i really do. these germans are generally won 19 to have players that can make a difference and affecting areas. it sounds simple but the big players really ca n sounds simple but the big players really can do that and we have harry kane, and iliad link, raheem sterling and marcus rashford among these players they can do these things —— dele alli. we really do have to keep some context here and know that when you do good to be business and, and when you have started to see it a bit with brazil and the second half yesterday, that neymar all of a sudden looked like we we re neymar all of a sudden looked like we were starting to see the real neymar after the injury. the talent they have in their squad. germany can change things very quickly. if they get a result against sweden.
6:55 pm
and the bigger and better teams will compare. yet, england certainly should be confident where they are read at the moment come about i really expect the bigger teams i think spain will be very strong for the tournament. want to look at as we get past the group stage i suppose. frank lampard speaking to us earlier. the former england captain. you will be able to see and hear much more from franklin bbc one england and panama tomorrow lunchtime, and when i get if they win they will be through with belgium, a very, very- belgium belgium, a very, very strong belgium side. we saw the earlier today here in moscow. they beat toonie cfia— two. the highest scoring match yet at this world cup —— and they beat toonie cfia — two. romelu cuckold toonie. cfia r..two.romelllcuckold a couple goals there, he is now with a couple goals there, he is now level with cristiano ronaldo four. —— romelu cocco. that means the match that is about to kick off in sochi, all eyes are going to be on germany. - cannot afford to lose
6:56 pm
germany. they cannot afford to lose against sweden, or the reigning champions will be out. we will have updates on that the rest of the evening on bbc news. we will be back in at 7:30pm with another day as well. but for now from all of us in moscow, it's goodbye. that evening. temperatures were into the low 20s in the south today, a notch up on yesterday. even for the north it was a little warmer, too, but with more cloud. everywhere had more cloud today, some hazy as sunshine because of the high club. you can see that geraldes is the head. but with little cloud more than high cladogram for the next few days this warming triangle can continue both by day and by night. virtually no weather systems around except for the four north, that is where thejudgement is, except for the four north, that is where the judgement is, pushing across iceland towards scandinavia, allowing high pressure to build the temperature both by day and by night. across most of the uk. you can see the cloud earlier, this is
6:57 pm
slightly thicker cloud, it has been getting some rain engines across the west and northern isles of scotland. as we go through the night, it is tending to move its way up towards the north. and get stuck across the northern isles. it does look like a clearer night at half mainland scotla nd clearer night at half mainland scotland and therefore cooler here. whilst for further south and shouldn't be as quite chilly as recent nights, maybe don missed, but that will we're very quickly given the strength of the june that will we're very quickly given the strength of thejune sunshine. for sunday, very much as today, high pressure centred over the country. lots of sunshine around and very little breeze in fact. butjust a little breeze in fact. butjust a little northerly breeze may bring some cloud onto east anglian coast lines, possibly into the southeast. a little change of today. also more sunshine, less cloud across scotland and northern ireland. temperatures it will be two or three degrees higher. the fest up to 22 and adam are as well. the south nudging up as well, just a gentle breeze around the coasts. it will be an little bit more refreshing here. eventually the cloud clears away from shetlands. clearer night here, cooler night.
6:58 pm
but on the whole, because temperatures will start from a higher point, they won't dip right as well. bill and the odd pocket where it is quite chilly, particularly in the countryside, but temperatures in the towns and cities are starting to level up in these south into the low teens. monday does bring a risk of a little bit more cloud back into the far north and west of scotland, but again it will produce much weather, it should be reasonably dry, bright and still quite warm. by this stage you can see the temperatures are nudging it towards the mid 20s as well. even for scotland and northern ireland. we will find that heat and hot weather becomes more widespread across the whole of the uk as we go through the week. there will be somewhere i am through the week. there will be somewhere i am sure through the week. there will be somewhere i am sure that is dipping 30 celsius. it does look like we have a heat wave to come. hot by day and increasing warm by night. this is bbc news. i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 7pm. tens of thousands of people march through london — to demand a vote on the final deal on the uk's departure from the eu. the will of the people is to have a proper, informed referendum where we know
6:59 pm
what a brexit deal means. we can't keep going into this absolute disaster without stopping and re—thinking if we really want to do this. senior cabinet ministers stress the uk is still prepared to walk away from brexit talks without a deal. the prime minister has always said that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed and that no deal would be better than a bad deal. also ahead this hour, an explosion at an election rally attended by zimbabwe's president. he was unharmed in the blast, but at least two senior government officials were injured.
